Disappointing evening at the glass Monkey. Our appetizer came out lukewarm instead of hot. The wine recommended was not good at all. The beet salad was rather boring with a few slices of beets topped with arugula and a few sprinkles of goat cheese. The main came out hot and was very tasty. We had pork cheeks in a delicious sauce. Our waiter was great, just the right amount of attention. Not sure I will go back as there are so many good restaurants at the same price point.

Two servers on a busy Wed nite (plus the hostess helping in all areas). Service was very rushed as the 2 servers were busy trying to cover the whole restaurant. As our server was rushing around, she quickly stopped to ask “is everything okay?”; after we were mid way thru our food. That was the only time she stopped by (and yes, we realized she was busy). Didn’t feel relaxed at all in this environment where the servers were literally running around. Needless to say, we ate and left.

Our server was great, if a bit talkative. The ambiance was great. The hummus was very good, but the charcuterie platter was incredibly disappointing. The two very ordinary cheeses could have come straight from the Safeway cold cabinet. The smoked salmon was dry and tasteless and the plentiful pork was mundane.

I've been told to give it another try and might, but might not as well.

Shared several dishes between four people. Enjoyed each and every dish. I think the favourite was the Korean Rice Cakes. It’s actually nothing like what you would imagine to be a rice cake, more like tubes of pasta made from rice in a very flavourful Korean sauce. Delicious! Interesting cocktails as well. Only downside to the evening was the large group seated beside us who were very loud and made it difficult to have a conversation. Luckily they left halfway through our meal. Three Boars serves high quality food, innovatively prepared, and we thought it was very good value for the money in comparison to many other places.

We had a reservation for 5:30 on a Friday night. When we arrived we had a brief wait as the table was made ready. We were served quickly, although because it was very noisy, it was difficult to hear the server, so we had to ask several times that they speak louder.
The food was good - my guest had a burger and I had several small plates. It should be noted that the small plates are very small, so after 2 plates arrived, I ordered a third. All the food was tasty and well prepared. In the end, the 3 small plates with dessert was over $40. Be aware.

I was very disappointed in the quality of the food. The hummus was flavorless, the fish tacos were dry and flavorless, and the bread pudding which we had been told was the best in the city, was runny and had very little flavour. Also disappointed that the server did not question why the hummus was barely touched and the bread pudding, all shared between 3, was not finished. We will not be going back.

The waiter was amazing, we found it quiet pricey for what you got though. It's a nice treat, just not somewhere I'd go often.

We went for wing Wednesday, we’ll worth it. Food was hot and served as ordered. Also got the chili, and curried cauliflower. The only thing I didn’t like is we asked for regular seating and were still put in high tables and chairs. Other than that, the food was great, as always.
